Happily munching..... until.....!!

Walking with Aimee through Pinnaroo yesterday in the late afternoon as the sun was sitting just at the right height to give off a nice mellow glow, you know 'that special time' that we all love, about an hour or so before sunset, I spotted these guys through the arch of a tree branch nibbling away daintily on the grass. As I took this shot above, their ears and heads popped up to see what had made the intrusive noise.....
Checking me out, they must have decided I looked harmless enough and went right back to business.....! Honestly they are such a pleasure to watch, when something startles them and they bound off, it's quite a unique sight to see.....

  4. What kind of a location is this, Grace? Is this a zoo or a nature park? Or do kangaroos roam free here?

  9. Oh boy, I love these shots. I think every Australian should buy a copy from you and hang a print on his/her wall! They look almost prehistoric! Wonderful photographs!

  10. Great shots. How typical of what we all think of when we think Australia.

  11. I would be beside myself if I encountered these animals. Lowel is absolutely correct in his observations.

  19. Now though I don't mind cats, I really love these little fellas, they look so cuddly but thank heavens they are shy. You're right, the composition is wonderful and ah that light!

    Oh and Pinnaroo rhymes with... :-)

    (First frost here, yay!)

  23. These guys look so harmless when they graze! But I saw another side of them! I used to live on a property in Tasmania! Some/many BIG kangaroos would visit at night! One particular night something startled them! (We were inside at the time, so really no idea what it was!) We heard an enormous crash! Finally felt brave enough to check it out! A kangaroo had smashed through the wall of the shed! Only the ragged outline of his shape was left to prove it! The kangaroo must have been all right because there was no sign of him next day!

  26. They are the first picture that comes in my mind when I read the word Australia!(Second pic is Hugh Jackman..Ü)
    Are they living in liberty in park or gardens? They 're sooo cute! are they dangerous? do they let people caress them?...

  33. I think I found Pinnaroo. North of Perth, on Whitford Avenue, near Mitchells Freeway and across the street from Craigie Open Space. Right? Google maps and Google Earth are amazing. I think I see you.

  38. LOOK AT THOSE KANGAROOS!! How did I miss this posting - great photos, Grace of Perth!

    ReplyDelete
  39. What wonderful photos! But, they seem surreal to me...I couldn't imagine just looking over and seeing such creatures grazing away. Our wildlife is definitely much different!

    Love the lines of the kangaroos bending over to eat and that tree branch that gives a feature to the pic !
